systematically pieced together using six panels of reeds, the ‘yoshi bar’ by japanese designer naoya matsumoto resembles a traditional gabled roof stall. situated at the seian university of arts and design in otsu, shiga, japan, the small shelter is held in place by the natural fibers, which are grown in biwako, shiga. the different panels are unable to stand alone, but when placed next to each other they are supported to form the intimate enclosure. offering snatched glimpses through to its interior, the sculptural piece has an enchanting quality to it. easily constructed over a couple of days, the installation contains a bar, where people can enjoy a relaxing and atmosphere and natural surroundings.
